Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I have been working at University of North Carolina full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

A chance to do interesting work with interesting people. Good benefits.

Cons

The pay is much lower than in industry. Raises at the whim of state government. Very difficult to get a promotion unless you change positions. The support positions don't reward for experience. There seems to be a high turnover in faculty lately, probably due to the low pay and no research funding support.
